So, I have a story to tell…

I was recently asked why ‘petit’ instead of ‘petite’ given that I am a Francophile. Yes, I know I should know these things and trust me, I know these things. However, when I was signing up for this account, WordPress told me that ‘La Petite Muse’ was taken (URL), but ‘La Petit Muse’ was available, so I took it and the rest was history. I like the title of my blog to be the same as the URL so I kept ‘petit’.

I recently Googled ‘La Petit Muse’ and came across a fashion Tumblr of the same name and spelling.

The word petit actually means small, minor, insignificant or petty where the law is concerned in France. It is also a very common surname there. And guess what? I love the law too, so it worked out fine in the end. Although I am ‘butchering’ the language, I translate La Petit Muse to The Insignificant Muse. Blame my writing imagination, but I really like it. 😊

NOTE #17

He loved her for everything.

For the secrets she told and the ones she withheld. For the carefree spirit that was rooted in her from an early age. For the good times and bad times. 

This stunning personal revelation had undone him. He’d been in love for a long time now.

With her. 

“You used to tell me things,” she muttered.

He loved her for everything, but he was not brave enough to tell her.


For the #NovemberNotes challenge hosted by Sarah Doughty and RosemaPhoto via Pexels. I have a confession to make.

I haven’t heard most of these songs on the #NovemberNotes list and given that I’ve stopped listening to music I didn’t take the time to Google search any of the songs, I just took the title by the horn for my take.
